Lamborghini Unveils Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder

Two years after the debut of the coupé, Lamborghini has unveiled the Huracan Spyder

Sharing the same powertrain with the coupe, the Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder adds a lightweight, electrohydraulic soft top to the equation, making the Huracan even more desirable.

Available in three different colors (black, brown and red), the roof opens via a button placed on the central tunnel in just 17 seconds up to a driving speed of 50 km/h (31 mph). Whether the soft top is up or down, the driver can also electronically open the rear window. The Huracan Spyder stands just 1.18 meters (46.46 inches) high with the roof up.

As with the Huracan coupe, the Spyder’s naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine produces 610PS (602hp) and is mated to the “Lamborghini Doppia Frizione” (LDF) 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 10.2 seconds, while top speed is 324 km/h (201 mph).

The Spyder also comes with new technical features of the 2016 model year Huracan family, including “cylinder on demand” technology in combination with “stop/start”, as well as a new electronically controlled all-wheel drive set-up for improved driving characteristics. Thanks to these new features, combined fuel consumption is 12.3 l/100 km (19.1 mpg US), while CO2 emissions are 14 percent lower compared to the Gallardo Spyder. Lamborghini also says the Huracan Spyder exceeds the Gallardo Spyder by 50 percent in terms of downforce.

Thanks to its hybrid chassis that combines aluminum components front and rear with extensive carbon fiber elements in the occupants’ cell, the Huracan Spyder tips the scales at 1,542 kg (3,399 lbs), with a power-to-weight ratio of 2.53 kg (5.57 lbs) per hp.

Customer deliveries begin in spring 2016, with prices starting from €186,450 (plus taxes) in Italy.
